From August 24 to August 28, I traveled Taiwan. Looking back on Taiwan trip, the awareness of culture and historical trends was great. The trip was five days and four nights, but Taipei was bigger than I expected. The whole picture of the trip was the following schedule. I stayed at Haneda Airport from midnight the day before and took off to 05:30 at the Tiger Air on LCC. On the first day, we arrived at a hotel in Kunming near the Ximending station.Stroll around Yongsan Temple and Taiwan the governor's government. On the second day, the Palace Museum and the Makoto Shoten of the world's three largest museums.Night Market. On the third day, we ate at the head office of Ding Fung, strolling through nine in the evening, and night view at Taipei 101.Try Taiwan massage. On the fourth day, I spent the summer vacation at the beach in Changsha Bay.Try foot massage. On the fifth day, I went home in the afternoon.Back to the everyday. It is not enough in the feeling of a casual stroll like the Hong Kong S.A.R. Travel, and I think that it was good for a few days to enjoy it.
Taiwan as a legitimate "China"
Taiwan was Chinese besides the desire.Or, it was China as a lost hometown. The scent of the Chinese dynasty and its mellow culture drifted through the unbroken. And, the climate of the South was wrapping the fragrance. Taiwan, if you look from them, they are rather legitimate China. At the Palace Museum, the culture of the ancient dynasty was inherited.There were a lot of histories of Qing which was not only the history of the Han people but also the country of the origin and the Manchurian Race country of the Mongolian race nation and was talked about. Moreover, the one talked while strongly connected with the flow of the history was about the Buddhism.From ancient times, China was a country where Buddhism Mori. In particular, Mahayana Buddhism, which showed the heart of the Bodhisattva trying to save the Buddhism, which was based not only on their own liberation, but also for the salvation of others, flourished greatly in China. And, the Mahayana Buddhism might have been related to the reign of the emperor in each dynasty.There were many Buddhist temples in the Taiwan.It is a temple which was influenced by Taoism seeming China of course. It was that many gods of Guan, Confucius, and the Taoism and the emperor were being given at the same time to have caught eyes in those temples. There were many miya in the Taiwan.The temple is a religious institution honoring the emperor. In Japan, there was a connection between the Emperor and Buddhism from ancient times. It is said that many Shinto and Buddhist Buddhism, such as Kasuga Taisha, were gods Shinbutsu. However, it seems that such a culture of Japan was not the original at all, and a gala culture of the remote part of the east. In China, Buddhism was accepted in conjunction with Taoism, and the dynasty culture associated with Confucianism was also associated with Buddhism as a Mahayana Buddhist reign by the emperor. It was the center of Culture, China. The museum said that Buddhism as a Chinese culture is linked to the culture of Tibet and its flourishing country, which is not only India but also esoteric and famous. It was a region which was suppressed from the Chinese Communist Party and was opposed by the comb spiders. On the other hand, the Taiwan (Republic of China) saw the existence of the Takasago family. They say that they were gentle natives who appreciation agricultural crops with the sound of music. Taipei also passed a little away from the center (even though Taipei is far wider than the image of us who lives in Tokyo), and the people of a simple expression burnt on the day which seems that it might be Takasago tribe.
Taiwan and Japan
However, the Japan had occupied the Taiwan by the Shimonoseki Treaty which had been exchanged after the Sino-Japanese War. The age was an age of imperialism. The Taiwan the Governor-General's office, which was completed in 1919, is still being used in public affairs. Many buildings are still in the area around the governor's office. The military facilities used by the Japan military have now been utilized by the Chinese army. According to the man of the guide says such a ghost story during the term of imprisonment will also be whispered. "Mikiri in the middle of the night and heard the sound of boots.When I fell asleep during the Mikiri, I was yelled at by a Japanese in the voice of a superior officer."The Kukai was enshrined unexpectedly when you find a quaint temple in the shopping district while strolling around the governor's government. It is the Palace of Taipei in the vicinity of the West Gate station. It was spoken by the grandmother who seemed to be good at the Japanese when the shutter of the camera was cut while looking at the image by chance. She was born in Showa 4 and is now 88 years old.It is said that it went to the national school in the age when the Japan ruled before. She talks in the Japanese that he does not usually talk, and said that it was a shrine of the Japan where it once enshrined the Daishi. It is said that the temple was changed by the National Party which ruled the Taiwan after the Second Great War, and it was made the Heaven's palace.
The Taiwan of the Chinese Nationalist Party
The National party will then withdraw Taiwan by fighting the Chinese Communist Party in the Kuomintang Civil War. Chiang Kai-shek also felt as being handed down as the leader of the National Party though there was an image of Sun Yat-sen if it said the Taiwan and the Nationalist Party. Looking at the pattern of the coins, 50 yuan and 10 Yuan Sun Yat-sen, 10 Yuan and 5 yuan, 1 yuan was depicted a portrait of Chiang Kai-shek. I also wanted to see the National Party's history, but it was closed because of the renovation of the commemorative exhibition setup.I want more if I have a chance. The Taiwan is that there is still conscription now. There was a military shop called the military Police supply store in the town. A surveillance camera was installed in the city.
Culture of porcelain and Chinese characters
In the Museum of the NPM, the culture of pottery and Chinese characters was greatly treated as well as Buddhism. The relying of the culture of China might be large by this pottery and the culture of the Chinese character. Pottery is a typical craft and art from ancient times. They are of course made by craftsmen, but it has a natural atmosphere too. China is the soil and mud.Kneading it, shape it, bake it, and tint it. But, they are soil, and if they avalanche shape, they will return to the soil. We are the soil and mud, too.We, too, are the existence of a part of mellow nature which returns to the soil. or kanji culture.They are very different from the European languages that are influenced by Latin and Greece words.The European language is a phonetic letter.For example, the Roman alphabet has no meaning for a single character.As Derrida criticized, the language of Europe is a speech-centric principle and acts mainly on the narrative. It says or the element of the width of the interpretation by the reader and play is not wide in the language of Europe. It is very logical. On the other hand, the kanji culture is originally a ideographic character from Hieroglyphics. They symbolize one character, a symbol, and so on. On the other hand, it is not suitable for a strict logic construction in them therefore. It will be able to say like this.Kanji is a symbolic metaphor of play.It is clear, and there is room of the interpretation very much if it thinks about the classics of the Chinese writing.However, they are mellow therefore. They do not speak out of logic.It includes another story while it does not talk.
I spent a lot of other things. I bought a foreign book that the cover was redesign in a Makoto bookstore. In the White Sha Bay, the blinded of local high school girls and boys have been seen in the sun. In the night market in Shilin, I bought a street-style T-shirt and a cap. In a carpool taxi on the way back, I became friends with Barry from San Francisco. All the girls were cute. If all girls are nice Taiwan girls……
